This song about Nashville. Best. Song. Ever.

All good songs are ones you can sing along with, right? Well, we think this is the best song ever written about Nashville.  Sure, it's in Finnish and only Pekka Rinne from the Predators knows what he's singing, but who cares! You can sing the refrain though.

Hey Pekka... what would you do if you had his guitar?

Thanks to reddit user dboyer87 for pointing this out. It is legendary. Recorded in 1976, this man from Finland laid down an iconic track.  Wikipedia says:

Paavo Juhani "Jussi" Raittinen (born September 15, 1943 in Helsinki ) is a Finnish musician , known for his solo career as well as, among other things , the lyrics-composer and arranger of many songs, as well as The Boys .  

In 1974, Raittinen won the Autumn Tune with a piece of Metsämökin tont. [3] He has also appeared in the number of music programs, such as a presenter in the 1990s YLE TV2 for the indicated Triangle -visailuohjelmassa.

In 2004, the Ministry of Education awarded Raittinen a state artist's pension for her distinguished work as a creative and performing artist. [4] In November 2006, the President of the Republic awarded him the Pro Finlandia Medal of the Finnish Lion . [5]
